Just because you’ve already declared your neverending love for your significant other, there’s no reason you can’t relive your big day later on in life – after all, why should beautiful dresses, gorgeous food and wedding singers be just for the first timers?
There are so many reasons you might want to renew your vows, but at the base of it, most people want to reaffirm the love they’ve shared with their partner and update their promises for the next chapter of their lives.
This, by no means, has to be an extravagant occasion, but there are some couples who choose to renew their vows for another reason. If they were married in their youth, when money was short, it may have been far from their picture perfect day – and some people like to relive the day with the extra added qualities of experience and being more comfortable in their positions in life.
This also makes it a great way to have your whole family involved – as no doubt if you were married early in your life that your children were small or not even born.
Research from Saga suggests that it’s becoming a more popular choice than ever before for the baby boomer generation, with one in 14 over 50s thinking about renewing their vows. On average, couples are re-tieing the knot after 30 years. As Paul Green, director of communications at Saga, says, it’s a "great excuse for a party", so make sure you capture the party atmosphere with top notch wedding entertainers from Tailored Entertainment.
